The blending of these two grapes was made popular in Australia. The result is a delightful full-bodied red that stands up to the richness of the venison and brings out the subtleties of the sauce’s flavor.
Make an incision in the venison shoulder along the shoulder blade. This way the meat will easily detach from the bone when braising. Season with salt and pepper on both sides and set aside.
